Matt's notes:
'Boss Man' cuts in. could not be patched since there are overdubs or stuff from another show that were edited in from the album

'Mama Tried' and the patch in 'Wharf Rat' from the 'skulls' album(16 tracks)..

I Know you Rider cuts out

Good Loving cuts in



I decided to put this out for a number of reasons but mainly it's a big improvement as to what circulates. The main reason being Will's reels are in prime condition and have never had to be baked over a number of times. The exact lineage of all the 4/71 FE reels are still a mystery so perhaps we will really never know the whole story BUT some low gen reels @ 7.5 ips. have survived in one piece and these are some of them.. According to the story from Wilson and Pat Lee, Peter Kafer and Bill Gadsden "purchased" the supposed masters from a guy named Buddy Miller(now a country musician) and brought them up to the Northwest for them to copy back in 1973. Will's are 7.5 ips. and Pat's are 3.3/4 ips. Nobody for sure knows exactly which were masters since Buddy decided to keep a few for himself which is truly the crux of the mystery or if even Buddy had masters himself. I realize in some circles this is considered heresy but it's true and until Buddy comes forward and flat out states he had masters this should be considered as a possibility. We can only now just listen carefully and try to figure it out that way.. Anyhow please enjoy!



My notes:
Big Thanks to Matt, bless you Sir!

Subject: oh yeah
what a crystal clear recording. my personal copy is quite a bit more muddled. Killer versions all around, big nods to lovelight, hurts me too, and BIODTL, among others.
